Look! Up in the Sky! - The Podcast | Ep.4: Friday Night Karaoke - Musicales 1900-1939

 Al alcanzar los 100 videos en mi canal de YouTube y siendo la mitad de ellos videos de karaoke, toca celebrarlo con una serie de tres programas en la que repasaré cantando la historia del teatro musical a lo largo de las décadas: aquí, desde los 1900s hasta los años 30. Y celebrando también, de paso, a la mejor comunidad de karaoke del mundo entero: Friday Night Karaoke.

Look! Up in the Sky! - The Podcast | Ep.3: ¿Tú juegas la ficha?

En la tercera entrega de nuestro podcast hablamos de teoría e historia rolera: ¿es bueno limitarse a jugar la ficha? ¿Cuándo empezó a interpretarse el personaje? ¿Os resulta más fácil o difícil jugar personajes preexistentes?

Look! Up in the Sky! - The Podcast | Ep.1: Supergirl: Titans

 ¿Un podcast? Really, Marcos?

Bueno, yo empecé en la radio local y luego básicamente nos inventamos los podcasts en World Wide Radio a finales de los 90. After the local radio experience at Radio '92 in Barcelona's Olympic Village we basically pioneered the podcast scene in WorldWide Radio. Con la venia de Fernando Berlín, que ya llevaba mucho tiempo con lo suyo.

So, we stopped doing it basically when the word Podcast appeared. Fue llegar la palabra Podcast al mundillo, y dejamos de hacerlo.

And here we are, in 2022, after Radio 92, and WWR and Televisió Comtal/Televisió Sense Fronteres and the Maison de la Radio et la TV y la revista SFX, estoy traduciendo cómics Marvel... and a fan film about Supergirl is in the works. So I thought: ¿puede que a este gato-blog medio en ruinas aún le quede una vida más? 

¿Puede que aún tenga aliento para un podcast? 

Para volver a hacer lo que hacía al principio, pero esta vez sencillamente porque me gusta. Convertí mi afición en periodismo, ¿puedo volver el periodismo de vuelta en afición?

Y sobre todo, ¿lograré que haya una segunda entrega antes de un año? Que me conozco (fanfics, no os tengo olvidados, es que el mundo has gone crazy)... To be continued... ¡Y dentro careta!
